Yesterday afternoon Ethan, Johnny, and myself took to the sound in search of a leigh bank and feeding fish. In short order we found both. Most of the fish had stripes and were 16”-18” . However there were a couple of keepers in the mix. We also found the most concentrated numbers of specs all season. Most were small but there were several fish that beat the 1 foot mark and a couple right at legal ( of course we released them to fight another day). Both species took bass assassins ( opening night) 4” paddle tails on 1/4 oz jig heads. Ethan did especially well with his under a popping float. Even though the fish were not all big it was a lot of fun!
This morning Mr Bruce and I prepared ( Sea Hawk style) for “ the storm “ by fishing topwater for rock in the Tangier sound. Don’t worry, preparations went well and fresh fillets are ready for any fish eating emergency that comes our way. All jokes aside, please pray for the safety of all those that may be affected by the storm.
